Strawberry trees covered in mosquito nets as Chinese farmers protect them from insects

Farmers in China have come up with a novel way of making sure their fruit is organic and safe from insects.

They have been hanging mosquito nets over their strawberry trees in a bid to protect them from insects, which means they do not need to be sprayed with agricultural chemicals.

The nets are protecting the plants at the Dalangtan Red Bayberry Base on Huangyan District in Zhejiang province, and also are proving to be an economic benefit.

This is because the fruits are organic and therefore can command a much higher selling price than traditionally grown ones.

The Chinese bayberry tree is native to eastern Asia, in particular China, producing the berries.

They are a medium sized tree and can grow to be 10 metres (32 feet) in height.
